|Why Buy cView Upgrade Protection?|
| Crystal Reports itself is continually evolving into a more powerful product to meet ever more demanding needs of end users. Thus, we have an inexpensive annual upgrade protection license to make things easy and affordable for everyone. |
This license extends the development of cView, but at a fraction of the cost of buying a new license. We value our customers, and our upgrade protection product is our way of saying thank you while supporting you as you move forward with your own goals.
You do not need upgrade protection just to run cView. That said, there are some compelling reasons to buy upgrade protection along with your cView product.
|Upgrade Protection Agreements|
|The maintenance agreement has become standard practice in today's software environment. Such agreements have been around since the early days of IBM central computing systems. For desktop and server systems, they became necessary to support continued development of antivirus libraries. We like to call it upgrade protection, as that is a more accurate way to look at it. |
Some software vendors disable the product after the first year of use, unless you buy a subscription or have a maintenance agreement. Some software vendors don't do this. We are in that second group. Your business information and reporting system is critical, and so you can continue to operate via your original purchase. But doing so may be a mistake because you miss out on the benefits our upgrade protection agreement brings you.
|Privacy Assured, Time Respected|
|Some vendors treat their upgrade protection agreements like a license to bombard their customers with sales pitches. We don't do that. We don't share your information with other parties and we don't pester you with sales calls. We are respectful of our customers' need to get work done.|
|Crystal Reports Version Upgrades|
| One benefit of cView upgrade protection is it ensures your viewer works when you upgrade your version of Crystal Reports. But this isn't always possible for us to provide this benefit right away with a new version of Crystal Reports. |
So far, we have been able to quickly release a new viewer to match each new release of Crystal Reports. But we don't know what Business Objects will do with a given release before it comes out and we can't predict the complexities involved in updating a viewer to match it.
Even though you have cView upgrade protection, we may not have a replacement viewer available right away. If you are planning an upgrade to a version that has just come out, please contact mark @crystalkeen.com (remove the spaces) for compatibility information. Chances are good that we have you covered. But we don't like our customers to rely on chances.
